Five myths about green energy

Every once in a while you can find an example of sensible journalism in the state-run media. Here’s one from the Washington Post on the Five Myths about green energy. The author, Robert Bryce, is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute – not a WAPO employee. Still, these are not the types of articles usually found in the Washington Post. Kudos to them for publishing it.

According to Bryce, the five myths are:

  1. Solar and wind power are the greenest of them all.
  2. Going green will reduce our dependence on imports from unsavory regimes.
  3. A green American economy will create green American jobs.
  4. Electric cars will substantially reduce demand for oil.
  5. The United States lags behind other rich countries in going green.
